[Histonet] SURVEY

From:"Weems, Joyce"

Two questions for "O ye wise ones" 1.  Do you all, especially hospitals, match technical CPT billing codeswith  your pathologist's professional billing codes? And     if so, how do you do this?  Who does this?  Do your pathologists?Is it done before or after diagnosis? How do you meet the     hospital billing window?   2. When your pathologist is paid to perform autopsies by the hospital,does the fee include lab testing or does the hospital      pay additional monies to  the  pathologist to cover cost ofimmunos, special stains, cultutes, drug screens, etc.?   As always, thanks for your help. j:>) Joyce WeemsPathology ManagerSaint Joseph's Hospital 5665 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd NEAtlanta, GA 30342404-851-7376 - Phone404-851-7831 - Fax Confidentiality Notice ** The information contained in this message may
